Ex-DENR exec gets jail term for claiming he has no wife

/ 07:01 AM February 05, 2018

The Sandiganbayan has meted out a prison term of one month to one year on a former Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) official for falsely declaring in his 2007 asset disclosure that he had no wife.

In a nine-page decision, the court’s Fourth Division found River Basin Control Office Executive Director Jacob Meimban Jr. guilty of one count of perjury.


He was also fined P5,000.

Meimban wrote the name of his spouse as “N/A (not applicable)” in his 2007 statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN).


He was still legally married at the time, as his annulment petition filed in 2004 was still pending. —Vince F. Nonato
